When Revenue Canada introduced income tax credits for donations of cultural material to institutions, one intent was to encourage people to see documents as being valuable, and to donate documents to institutions rather than to garbage dumps or incinerators. Three examples suggest how that worked: Eatons; Roy Studio photographs; Boyd family diaries and household records. From the late 1960s, respect for archival institutions grew. Sometimes the tax credit was reinvested in archives.
